    • The Wages Of Embarassing Elites Are Death
      Everyone remember the Panama papers? A leak of bank records showing that the ultra-rich are hiding massive wealth, tax-free and often breaking the law to do so? A rather weak set of laws designed to allow tax avoidance by rich people, at that. Found out the other day that the reporter who broke the Panama Papers story was killed by a car bomb.

Welcome New PUMAs!

I’ve had a look at our statistics and it looks like a lot of new visitors have been reading our post on PUMA Power. Here’s what it’s all about:  your vote.  Yes, you hold in your sweaty little hand the ability to change history.  As Murphy says, “We are the ones no one was expecting.” YOU are the real change.  You and me and 18,000,000 other voters are reaching out to one another and standing united in saying that we do not have to accept the fate that was decided for us.  We are united in saying that we expect the Super Delegates to do what they were created to do: give us the most electable Democratic nominee to run against the Republicans this year.

Our party is not united now.  There is no use in pretending that it is.  But the Super Delegates can listen to the voters and do the right thing.  They can assess the effect of the gaming of the caucuses on the pledged delegate count and decide if it can lead to an electoral victory for Obama.  They can deliberate over what will happen to FL and MI now that they have been restored to full voting strength but were prohibited from throwing their primary weight behind their winning candidate – Hillary Clinton.

But the most important thing they can decide is whether it is better to allow perception management techniques to continue to portray Barack Obama as the presumptive nominee or whether it is better to force Howard Dean to strictly enforce the rules and procedures for a fair, open and transparent election.

If they do not, we, the voters, reserve the right to take our votes and put them to use elsewhere in order to make sure the powers that be become the powers that were.

You are not alone.  No matter what happens, we will be here when the dust settles.  You can get involved by visiting PUMAPac, signing up for the daily growl and doing simple actions in your community to let others know that THEY are not alone either.

Find a buddy, hold hands, stick together.  People United Mean Action.
